Hello From A Canada :)

Hi everyone, and Merry Christmas :)

So, as everyone (or the majority of the users here), I've been diagnosed with Gluten allergy. To be honest, at the beginning, I took it really badly for two reasons:

  1. I already have other allgies (like most of you), but ones that have been quite new. The weirdest one was when eating salmon caused me an anaphylaxia. Later on, I was told by my doctor, that when the fish is not killed instantly, its system releases a substance similar to adrenaline that runs in its muscle and flesh as long as it remains alive, and doesn't disappear when it dies. And it appears, it's something that is highly allergenic. I honestly thought it was a joke. But well, in short I was already paying attention to what is in my plate.
  2. I LOVE bread. It may sound stupid, but i ate bread at every single lunch. I know there are gluten-free breads' recipes, thank Lord. I'm going to buy a bread machine on boxing days and start my quest for the perfect recipe.

I had been sick for several months, but I spent the whole month of November without eating (well, only a veggie soup a day and tea), while the "doctors" I have here in Canada tried to decipher why I couldn't digest anything. It's actually my doctor from France who thought of Gluten allergy or Celiac disease. He told me to try to eat gluten-free. So I started to eat a bit more again, all gluten-free, and I'm feeling better now. I'm still learning what I can eat or not. Though, I noticed that I cannot drink Coke or Sprite, it makes me sick again.

I will go back to France for a week to see a specialist and run all the tests, as here, you need to wait for at least three months (and it's more likely that the waiting period is going to be longer) before getting an appointment <_<

Anyhoo, I joined this forum, because everytime I google something related to my new diet, I always find the best answer here :)

Again, I wish you hall a Merry Christmas :)
